I would just say “Don’t visit Russia.” It sounds, one, like a total ripoff for any foreigner, and at least these days, not really safe for Americans especially. And of course we Americans have to put up with them cussing at us, railing at us, spewing hate and filth and insults at us online every day, but we can’t say one bad thing about them, oh nooooooo.
